HVO For Data Centers
It is no secret that data center facilities require diesel generators for backup power in the event of a power disruption. As the data center industry pledges stronger commitments to environmental sustainability, biofuels look like a formidable alternative to petroleum diesel. Earlier biofuels like FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters) Biodiesel proved problematic during long-term storage for critical backup systems when exposed to contamination from microbes, water entrainment, and temperature instability.
HVO fuel mitigates thee problems seen with FAME Biodiesel while retaining the benefits of renewable components in the production process and greenhouse gas reductions throughout the fuel’s lifecycle. HVO has been used by data centers in Europe for over a decade and is approved for use in Caterpillar, Kohler and Cummins generators.
